“Berry Springs. Berry Special.”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Paradise! Close to Darwin. Carpark easy walking distance to springs. Two sets of toilets. Beautiful and plentiful bbq's and tables,shaded and sunny grassed areas for picnicking. Swimming holes to die for, uncrowded and idyllic with easy access to the beautiful, warm clear water. Watch fish swim so close to you, you could touch them! Bring goggles and a floating device to explore even further up the stream. A must see and do while in Darwin. 40 min easy drive up the Stuart Highway. Googled it and read the reviews, thought we would give it a try, but I can't put into words how perfect it was. Great for every age group.

“Great place”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Well if you are coming here for the day bring all your food &drinks as there are none here. Great place for a BBQ or a picnic lovely well looked after grounds. Heaps of space. The swimming holes were great loved it the water was so warm about 25deg I recon a must swim if you are lucky to go when there are no crocks like we were. But get there early as the swimming holes are not real big for crowds &lots of people at any one time. A must see & do

My husband and I went to Berry Springs twice. Very easy to find, well signposted. Loved the warm water and floating down between the two pools from the actualy springs and waterfall. Would certainly recommend this place, one needs to spend a day there. The barbeques were great, the toilets and change rooms were a bit wet and not the cleaniest place but okay.

Great place for a relaxing day out including a picnic and swim. The area is big so crowds don't matter. It's safe, unless a sign says there's a salty in the water ... in which case stay out !!

“Nice place for a relaxed swim”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Though we reached late and did not have enough time to enjoy this place, still was a great experience. Relaxed swim, easy access, ample parking space and proximity to Darwin make it an ideal get away from the city.
Carry some sunscreen and insect repellant for your own good!!
